2011 Heisman Hopefuls From The SEC

Going into 2010, Mark Ingram and Ryan Mallett were the Heisman favorites in the SEC.  But by December, Cam Newton had gone from nowhere (Blinn Junior College) to the history books.  It’s possible next year’s Heisman winner will come from off the hot lists, too.

But for now, those hot lists are starting to turn up on the big, national sports sites.  Dennis Dodd of posted his pre-2011 favorites list yesterday and the SEC is represented as follows:

* Mike Dyer, RB, Auburn — One of the Dodd’s 10 favorites for the award.  “With all the talk about Newton and Nick Fairley, wasn’t it Dyer who won the national championship game in the fourth quarter?”

* Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama — Another of Dodd’s 10 favorites.  “While playing in the shadow of Ingram the past two years, Richardson has run for 1,451 yards while averaging 5.4 yards per rush.”

* Knile Davis, RB, Arkansas — Labeled as “the next level” down from Dodd’s top 10.  “The Next Big Thing at tailback in the SEC.”

* Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina — Also in “the next level.”  “With three of his starting offensive linemen returning, Lattimore shoudl become a 1,500-yard runner in ’11.”
